Costume National Homme is the brainchild of Italian fashion designer Ennio Capasa, founder of the avant-garde, ready-to-wear label Costume National. The elegant minimalism of Costume National Homme’s tailored men’s suits, blazers, and high-quality leather jackets evokes the rocker chic of the 1970s. It’s no surprise, then, that the brand’s designs have adorned many of the same musicians whose personal styles inspire its collections — by our count, that includes at least three of the Rolling Stones. Over the decades Costume National has expanded its repertoire to include women’s clothing and bags, swimwear, glasses, fragrances, and shoes. In addition to the flagship line, Costume National also owns the diffusion label C’N’C Costume National, known for its contemporary street-inspired style.
We’d be happy to hang by these high-styling threads. Find style from cuff to collar and be ready for all of fall.
This is fashion for the fetishistic. Ennio Capasa, former mentee of Yohji Yamamoto, debuted his ready-to-wear collection in 1986 to wild proclamations of groundbreaking new Italian trends. Costume National's ultra-edgy, avant-garde designs lean toward precision, architecture and super-modern tailoring. Sharp suits, lean leathers, geometric heels, thigh-high boots and draped dresses are the marks of Costume National's menswear, footwear and womenswear collections, making the label a favorite of high-profile clientele such as Milla Jovovich, Mick Jagger and Katie Holmes.
Spring-cleaning reminder: you’re going to need to make some room in your closet for this one. It’s all here — laceless leather sneakers and eel loafers from Cesare Paciotti; cashmere hoodies and long johns by Richard Chai; leather shoes, bags and briefcases from Costume National Homme.
An international crash course in contemporary men’s fashion from designers both up-and-coming (Adam Kimmel) and legendary (Rick Owens, Marc Jacobs).
